the lost girls of willowbrook by Ellen Marie Wiseman
Based on the way state schools for the mentally retarded were actually run, this is the story of Sage, a 16 year old girl who has just discovered that her twin sister, who she had been told was dead, was actually at Willowbrook State School, a facility for mentally ill children. Sage goes to find her sister, and she is mistaken for her twin sister, who was missing at the time. Sage experiences the horrors of being incarcerated in a State School as she fights to keep her sanity and find her sister. Because this story is based on actual conditions of State Schools in the past, the story is horrifying and heartbreaking.

Extra Witchy by Ann Aguirre
This third installment in the Fix-it Witches series features Leanne Vanderpol, a witch with political ambitions and Trevor Montgomery a handsome underachiever. While mostly lighthearted, the book does deal with Trevor's depression and with some family issues that affect them both. I enjoyed the growing friendships in the book and seeing how the characters were able to overcome their issues as love conquers all.

Fired Up about Reproductive Rights by Jane Kirby
This book gives a well-researched timeline of many of the various attacks on women's reproductive rights. It goes far beyond abortion and includes information about eugenics and population control. I think this book is a must read for anyone who is researching these topics and it is quite timely at the moment. I listened to the audio version of the book, which is well done.
